Deduce: To reach (a conclusion) by reasoning. He deduced that the killer was a man because the victims were elderly women with no relatives but the toilet seat was left in the up position as if a man had used the toilet. Deduct:     Subtract or take away (an amount or part) from a total(subtraction, like in Mathematics). I am going to deduct $5 from your wages each time you are late for work.
